Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is caused by the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) in the deep veins of the leg.
Prolonged immobilisation results in an increased risk to develop DVT.
Additional factors can increase this risk even further.
In 1846, Rudolf Virchow described the factors of relevance for the development of DVT. Virchow's Triad still is valid nowadays:
- Anti-embolism stockings
- Phlebotropic drugs
- Early mobilisation of the patient
Comprinet® pro – the modern anti-embolism stocking for the prophylaxis of deep vein thrombosis
Comprinet® pro applies a continuously decreasing pressure gradient from distal to proximal in line with medically recognised levels of compression.1
Comprinet® pro effectively helps prevent deep vein thrombosis by increasing blood velocity and helping reduce venous stasis.
